Romantic Rustic Glam

This winter wedding at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton California had touches of rustic glam and an abundance of romance, with blush pink, deep burgundy wine, oodles of greenery, candle light and rose petals.

The ceremony, held in the barrel room with romantic chandeliers, petals scattered along the sides of the aisle and centerpieces on wine barrels at the altar. The lovely bride carried a waterfall bouquet with pink peonies, blush roses, burgundy dahlias, grey succulents, pepper berries, hanging amaranthus, ruscus and seeded eucalyptus. The adorable flower girls wore flower crowns of spray roses and pepper berries and carried baskets of rose petals to scatter down the aisle. The bridesmaids had soft mauve dresses and carried rounded bouquets matching the brides.

At the reception, the round guest tables had burgundy linens with rustic wood box floral arrangements of roses, dahlias, stock and greenery. The wood farm tables were decorated with seeded eucalyptus garland with tucked in flowers and tea light candles.

Her lovely bridesmaids wore soft lilac dresses and carried rounded bouquets of white with accents of blush pink garden roses. Micheal and his groomsmen kept it traditional with black tuxedos and wore ivory tea rose boutonnieres.

The ceremony was held in the tented courtyard under the crystal chandelier. the ceremony space was elegantly decorated with ivory pedestals in different heights holding large hourglass vases with rounded floral arrangements in whites, ivory and blush pinks. The aisle was adorned with a scroll pattern of white and blush rose petals along both sides with hanging jars floral arrangements on every other chair. The reception held in the ballroom was truly a fun party, yet elegant and sophisticated. Both low footed dish and tall hourglass arrangements around the room, with whites and blush pinks.
